Schools and Offices to Close Day Before Thanksgiving, Nov. 24
The following message was emailed to staff on Tuesday, Nov. 9.
Dear MCPS Staff,
Today the Board of Education passed a resolution to close all schools and offices on Wednesday, Nov. 24, the day before Thanksgiving. This will provide an extra day for staff and students to be with family and friends during Thanksgiving break. Nov. 24 was originally scheduled to be an early-release day for all staff and students. Schools and offices will now be closed from Wednesday, Nov. 24 through Friday, Nov. 26. Schools and offices will reopen on Monday, Nov. 29. All staff scheduled to work on Wednesday, Nov. 24, will be paid, and no staff members will be charged leave for this date; this will be a holiday for all staff and will be marked as HOL on your timesheet.
I want to express my deep appreciation to each of you for all that you do for our students. I am profoundly grateful to be a part of the MCPS family. I hope you are able to take some time to rest and recharge during the extended Thanksgiving break.
Monifa B. McKnight, Ed.D.
Interim Superintendent of Schools
